In celebration of last week’s World Clean-Up Day, Central Coast based environmental organisation, Take 3 for the Sea, has launched an online learning program for primary and secondary students across Australia.
The free program includes access to 12 curriculum-aligned lesson plans and learning resources focused around how individuals, communities and global actions impact waterways.
The program aims to educate five percent of Australian schools, including 30,000 students and 1,000 teachers.
Using a project-based learning approach, the students work collaboratively to investigate and respond to an engaging question, problem or challenge which is based on a real-world setting or scenario.
Take 3 for the Sea CEO, Sarah Beard, said she hopes the program will encourage children to be more environmentally friendly on our beaches and coast lines.
“We’re delighted to be launching Take 3’s Online Learning Program in line with World Clean Up Day 2020,” she said.
“This free program provides premium, curriculum-aligned learning materials that directly address ocean pollution, while inspiring kids to be part of the solution.”
Lessons are free to access for anyone via the website www.coolaustralia.org/take-3-for-the-sea-project-based-learning/
